Ronnie Foster at "Just Jazz"

Ronnie Foster on B3 (throwin' down effortless left hand bass, too), Phil Wigfall on reeds, Jesse Gopen on tubs, Ronnie Rathers on guitar (badass Wes Montgomery style). Old school straight-ahead jazz on Sunday nights. Very nice. Love the little figurine inside above the entrance (100 East Sahara, BTW).

Place reminds me of black jazz clubs we used to go to in Newark when I first started gigging in 1964. Couldn't get good shots in the dim light tonight, had to bail to flash. Good to see Ronnie, haven't gotten to see him in a while.
